Vegetables play an integral role in overall nutrition and now you’ll know which ones you should incorporate into your daily diet.
We have prepared a list of the top 10 healthiest vegetables. These essential, natural, super-foods, have shown to significantly improve peoples’ health and well-being.
While there are many things that can be incorporated into a healthy diet, we focus on vegetables, as these are accessible to most people and haven’t been processed.
The ranking is based on the vegetables’ nutrition values and health attributes, as well as its price, convenience and overall flavor.
Here are some clues regarding which veggies made it to our Top 10 healthiest vegetables:
Our #10 contains high fiber and has no fat and calories. These facts make it a great weight-loss tool. (Of course, as long as you don’t smother it in Parmesan cheese!).
It has heart-healthy components, potassium which can help reduce strokes and dementia, and antioxidants that prevent damage to brain cells.
Our #8 –Ranks high as a free radical-fighting powerhouse, with a low-cal source of potassium, protein, fiber and folate. It is known for its cleansing properties, which means it makes you go number 1 and 2… With vitamins A, B6, C and K, cardiovascular health and immunity receive a boost, and iron keeps the oxygen flowing. Plus, some researchers claim it helps hangovers.
Our #6 – This veggie is known as good for sight. Beta-carotene is responsible for the orange color and humans metabolize it into vitamin A, which in turn, keeps eyes, skin and hair healthy. It also contain vitamin C, which keeps cardiovascular systems running smoothly and promotes iron absorption, Vitamin K, which ensures your blood clots and other nutrients and minerals for preventing problems from cataracts to cancers. I personally like to put it in a juicer and drink the juice.
And we all know the joke: “Have you ever seen a rabbit wearing glasses?”…
Our #2 is especially good for smokers and diabetics: vitamin A protects against emphysema, while a low glycemic index rating keeps insulin levels normal.
This super-veggie crushes most veggies in nutrient density, with more fiber, protein and complex carb content, plus anti-cancer vitamins A and C, iron and calcium. β-carotene targets free radicals, vitamins and antioxidants fight inflammation and heart disease, and potassium lowers blood pressure. It is pretty cheap as well!
